The Turkish military shelled 79 Daish targets in northern Syria, destroying terrorist positions as part of Operation Euphrates Shield, sources said on Sunday.
According to military sources, the shelling destroyed nine shelters, two terrorist headquarters, four hardened sites, weapon depots, and three weapons-laden vehicles belonging to Daish.
Additionally, three Special Forces Groups consisting of opposition forces took control over four residential districts along the Syrian towns Azaz and al-Rai, bringing the total number of residential areas controlled by the opposition to 111 (960 km2).
Two opposition fighters have been killed in clashes, while eight have been injured, military sources said.
Turkish fighter jets hit seven Daish targets, killing four terrorists and destroying seven buildings used as command centers and weapons depots by the terrorists.
In addition, coalition airstrikes killed five Daish terrorists and destroyed four buildings used by Daish.
Turkey launched Operation Euphrates Shield on Aug. 24 in cooperation with the U.S.-led anti-Daish coalition to clear terrorist groups from Turkey's borders. So far, Turkey-backed FSA units have captured the town of Jarablus and more than 32 villages located west of the Euphrates River.
